Christina is our powerhouse creative leader. With 12 years of experience in the industry — many of them spent specializing in beauty and packaging — she is a multi-talented creative innovator. Christina hails from the Midwest, and attended graduate school at Atlanta’s Portfolio Center for Design, where she graduated top of her class. She began her career at Hallmark Cards, and has since worked with a variety of high-level clients. Before taking the creative helm at T&P, she had a 6-year tenure as the Senior Art Director for Paul Mitchell. There she created and launched the new brands Awapuhi and Mitch, re-branded the Tea Tree line and excelled in creating Holiday gift sets. When she’s not creative directing, Christina loves gardening, yoga, cooking gourmet meals, entertaining, and of course, champagne.
